Reactor Kafka 1.0.0.M1 released

Releases | Rajini Sivaram | December 15, 2016 | ...

We are pleased to announce the release of the first milestone of Reactor Kafka 1.0.0.

What is Reactor Kafka?

Reactor Kafka is a reactive API for Apache Kafka based on Project Reactor. Reactor Kafka API enables messages to be published to Kafka topics and consumed from Kafka topics using functional APIs with non-blocking back-pressure and very low overheads. This enables applications using Reactor to use Kafka as a message bus or streaming platform and integrate with other systems to provide an end-to-end reactive pipeline.

The value proposition for Reactor Kafka is the efficient utilization of…

For a complete list of changes; see the what’s new in the reference manual and the release notes.

First milestone of next-generation Spring Data released

Releases | Oliver Drotbohm | November 23, 2016 | ...

On behalf of the Spring Data team, I’d like to announce the first milestone of the Kay release train. This is a special release train as it's going to ship a new generation of Spring Data that will include a couple of breaking changes going forward.

Infrastructure upgrades

The first and most noticeable change is the upgrade to Java 8 as a minimum baseline (no JDK 6 compatibility anymore) and an upgrade to Spring 5 as framework foundation. In subsequent milestones we're going to ship some significant internal rewrites that will also affect user facing API to make use of the new language…

Spring Cloud Task 1.1.0.RELEASE is now available

Releases | Michael Minella | November 22, 2016 | ...

We are pleased to announce that Spring Cloud Task 1.1.0.RELEASE is now available via Github and the Pivotal download repository. Many thanks to all of those who contributed to this release.

Spring Cloud Task 1.1.0 offers the following features:

This is the generally available release (GA) for 1.1.0. This release addresses key enhancements to the project to allow for better coverage of operational concerns for tasks in a cloud environment. Features new to the 1.1.0 line include:

  • Updated error handling - 1.0.x stored stack traces that were the result of task executions within the TaskExecution#exitMessage field, requiring that this field perform double duty. First it was available for orchestration of tasks (similar to StepExecution#exitStatus in Spring Batch) as well as the storage of stack traces for debugging. In the 1.1.0 release, error messages have been moved to a new field TaskExecution#errorMessage so that each field has it's own, dedicated use.

  • Updated customization options for partitioned batch jobs - In the 1.0.x line for Spring Cloud Task, when launching workers as tasks, there was not a way to customize the command line arguments provided to them. This is an issue in environments like CloudFoundry where you can use command line args to customize configuration without the need to re-push your app. In the new 1.1.0 release, we provide the ability to customize command line arguments via the CommandLineArgsProvider which is similar in functionality to the EnvironmentVariablesProvider introduced in 1.0.2.
